Beach Volleyball Clinics and Tournaments
Elite announces, Summer 2013, its 5th year of beach volleyball training and competition teams. We will start our beach program the final week in May and it will run through the end of July. We will train not only the skills but the strategy to be successful at the game of sand volleyball and indoor volleyball as a whole. It has been proven that sand/beach volleyball will improve your volleyball IQ and all around skills. Give it a try, it’s a blast!
(You do not have to be a part of Elite Volleyball Indoor Club to be a part of Elite Beach Volleyball)
In 2012 we had over 50 kids in our Sand program, this year we are looking to improve our training as well as our tournament schedule. With our training style we will teach the entire game of beach volleyball, from Volleyball IQ, the rules and the proper team work to be successful. Below is a registration form. You do not need a partner to be a part of our beach training. The great thing about beach is that you can change your partner every week during training. Each athlete can choose what tournaments to attend, and teammates can be changed for each tournament. Competing is not required.

Randy Cline, Randy has played at the professional beach and indoor level and currently still plays on the EVP tour out of Chicago and formerly spent 4 years competing on the AVP professional and qualifying tour. He is looking forward to helping our young athletes in developing there over all skills. Beach development will only make your volleyball skills better. ”Being that this is played with only two players, you have to not only pass and hit, but you have to able to set and play defense”. Beach volleyball is the back bone to teaching you a fully fundamental game. With this type of training mixed with competition we are hoping to close the gap between the midwest and west coast.
